What kind of driving license do I need?

I have a US driver's license.

1. Will I be allowed to drive a rental car at the Istanbul airport using my US driver's license?

2. If I later buy a car in Istanbul, can I simply use my US driver's license or must I get a Turkish driver's license?

3. If I need to get a Turkish driver's license, do I simply convert it from my US driver's license or am I required to take a written test and a driving test from scratch?

4. I see some reference to an international driving license. Do I need to get one or can I simply use my US driver's license for the questions above?
